The Student Transportation of America Education Foundation is the philanthropic arm of Student Transportation Inc. The STA Education Foundation was created in 2003 to advance the educational opportunities available to deserving high school seniors enrolled in the U.S. school districts served by our company.
We have a history of long-term relationships with school districts and the children they serve. We are invested in their safety and their success and our Foundation's scholarships are tangible expressions of that investment.
- Denis J. Gallagher,
Chairman of the Foundation
As the world becomes increasingly more competitive, and the financial burdens placed upon families more acute, the ability to afford a college education can be out of reach for many high school students who want to pursue successful careers. The STA Education Foundation believes that we must invest in higher education to meet the competitive challenges of today's world. Our mission is to grow the financial base of the STA Education Foundation to provide more support and an increasing number of scholarships to deserving students with each passing year.
"We strive to be more than just the yellow school bus company. STA's business is all about kids and our Foundation was created to help them fund the higher education opportunities they deserve."
- Peter J. Pearson,
President, STA Education Foundation
